Technology Reminders & Costs
Hello Anaheim Hills Elementary Parents,
At the beginning of the school year students were issued a new updated device and cord. Grades 3-6 received Dyna Books, grades K-2 received iPads. To ensure that students have the most up to date and school compatible equipment to succeed, we have switched any of the old devices to new Dynabooks/iPads. Your student is responsible for this new device. This school year charges will be enforced for damaged devices. A damaged device includes, but is not limited to stickers added, missing keys, broken trackpad or camera, and lost cord. Blue painters tape or electrical tape with the student's name are the only acceptable items that can be added to the front of the device and cord. Optional Insurance can be purchased for your student's device. https://schooldevicecoverage.com/ Please see the replacement costs below.

PTA Volunteer Guidelines - Updated OUSD Procedures
OUSD is now allowing a very limited number of parents onto campuses to do work for parent organizations. Volunteers are not allowed in the classroom or with students yet. Parent volunteers must complete the HR paperwork before coming onto campus.
OUSD will look at the success of these volunteers and then assess adding more volunteers for classroom/student help for trimester 2. OUSD wants us to limit the number of volunteers on campus to no more than five at this time.
Vaccinations are required to start the process and be cleared as a volunteer to comply with CDPH guidance for volunteers.
For our PTA executive board/chairs/volunteers who are in need of campus access for copies or organizing things for a PTA related purpose in the campus workroom, please complete the proper form below:
Volunteer Forms Over 5 hours per week
Volunteer Forms Under 5 hours per week
Once a PTA volunteer is approved, please email AnaheimHillsPrincipal@orangeusd.org to get your essential PTA volunteer visit to the workroom approved and scheduled on our volunteer calendar.
